Nigeria Advocates for Two-State Solution Amid Israeli-Palestinian Conflict



Since Hamas gunmen infiltrated the border on October 7, Israel has heavily bombarded Gaza, resulting in the deaths of over 1,400 people, mostly innocent civilians, and the abduction of 240 others, including children, as reported by Israeli officials.

The health ministry in Hamas-controlled Gaza has reported that the strikes have claimed the lives of 8,525 individuals, predominantly civilians, including more than 3,500 children.

Tuggar expressed concern over the loss of innocent lives in the conflict and urged both parties to cease hostilities.

He stated, “I reiterated to the Palestinian Ambassador to Nigeria Nigeria’s steadfast stance, which supports a two-state solution. We vehemently oppose indiscriminate violence against civilians, regardless of the perpetrators. Nigeria voted in favor of a cessation of hostilities in Gaza, reaffirming our position.”

The Palestinian Ambassador to Nigeria expressed his visit to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as an effort to seek Nigeria’s support, given its influential position in Africa and the rest of the world.

Ambassador Shawesh noted, “We believe that Nigeria, with its significant political influence globally and particularly in Africa, can make a substantial impact by raising its voice. This will lead to the salvation of many innocent children. It holds great significance for us. Additionally, we are looking to Nigeria to provide substantial assistance in humanitarian matters, particularly in light of the extensive destruction in Gaza. We require extensive rescue equipment, and we trust that Nigeria will play a crucial role.”
